Unused Training Dollars This Year?
As we come to the end of another year, we wanted to bring your attention to Subscription Tokens available through the Credit Union Webinar Network. Tokens are a great way to use any remaining training dollars without having to purchase webinar training right now. Tokens can be used to purchase live or on-demand webinars anytime. Tokens for both live and on-demand (both) are also available. Either way, the more you buy, the more you save! Best of all, Subscription Tokens do not expire so buy anywhere from 5 tokens or more to save up to 25% on webinar training later, at your convenience! Additional information can be found at this link.
